Nestling amidst the great Himalays, the tiny kingdom of Tibet evokes images of monasteries, meditating monks, Buddhism and towering above them all, the Dalai Lama. The Tibetan diaspora is perhaps the only community in the world today wherein the spiritual head also dons the mantle of political leadership. Traversing the road backwards to the fifteenth century when Gedun Drub became the First Dalai Lama, over the centuries, the role of the Dalai Lama only grew in stature - with the Great Fifth and the Great Thirteenth, in particular, each proving to be an 'ocean of wisdom', a living testimony to the title conferred upon them. Of sizeable contemporary interest and interspersed with rare archival photographs, The Dalai Lamas of Tibet is an empathetic look at the spiritual influence that continues to guide Tibetans today. Printed Pages: 128.
